Exciting News Just in Time for Summer!

June 10th, 2009 by Coconut Coasters | Posted in Coconut Wireless |

With the summer season close at hand, the un-official word that the north section of the path has already been opened couldn’t have come at a better time. Riders, walkers and joggers have been not-so-patiently waiting for the gates to come down so they could again traverse the winding path along the shoreline from Kealia Beach to Kuna Bay (AKA Donkey Beach). This area, once an old cane haul road has been paved and now provides easy access to all while offering some of the best photo opportunities I have seen along Kauai’s east side.

The 1.8 mile addition to what is already a spectacular path was well worth the wait. Although the county took months to open the gates, the pavement is smooth and protective fences have been placed strategically along sections that have notoriously been problem areas for both walkers and riders. The goal of the fencing and new drainage areas is to curb the rock slides and water run-off issues common during hard rain. Although to my knowledge no official announcement has been published, the gates preventing access and signs warning of violations have been removed, so the public can breeze on by and take in the sites.

The county has placed two nice covered pavilions with picnic benches along the path route, both with exceptional views. The new signage at Kealia is also outstanding and provides riders/walkers with information about places of interest along the path as well. We are really proud and excited that our east side path is growing and that the plans to continue the work are coming along so nicely! Congratulations Mayor Carvalho
